This workshop includes an evening introduction to the basics of Nonviolent Communication (NVC), developed by Dr. Marshall Rosenberg, and a 2-day training how to apply NVC in mediation. Using this model we can move away from the specifics of "he said, she said" into the heart of the issue, uncovering the deeper needs that have not been recognized, honored, or met. Participants will be introduced to a specific mediation process developed by “Mediate your Life” trainers Ike Lasater and John Kinyon that is simple, flexible, yet powerful and has helped thousands of conflict resolvers around the world to learn and apply NVC skills in every area of daily life.
